1949 Nordap Hilfsmotor

This fascinating machine is one of the rarest and most sought-after German cyclemotor. It was not

 very successful in its day, and I suppose that has helped its legendary status. Unlike the much more

 famous rear-wheel-mounted Cyclemaster, the unique Nordap fits into the front wheel of a bicycle

Nordap Hilfsmotor at the Akron Swap Meet 2012.  

Owner said he bought it at a thrift store.  I especially liked the gas tank.  

Engine cover is on the floor behind the bike.  

Made by Velmo, a German company about 1951
